So, did you get to try any of these magical dishes, or did you endure the torture of just taking pictures of them?
When I first started taking photos during the event, Everything was time sensitive as I was part of the social media team whom was handling all the live tweeting, instagramming, facebooking and all that jazz for the event. So I had to work fast to get everything captured and online quickly. Although I did try and snag a bite here and there along the way. After I took photos of everything that I needed I then went back and actually ate just about everything. At least what hadn’t sold out at that point. I missed the oysters, veggie burger, BBQ’d duck, and all the food from the BBQ throwdown. But everything else was amazing, and it was 7 hours of food bliss.
These days, photographers are dramatically strapped for time. We live in a world where “busy” is the most common answer for “how are you doing?” Endless client talks, long emails, phone calls, social media messages and trips steal your precious time with no intention of giving it back.
So, how can you become more effective in the time you do have and maybe earn yourself some time for shooting? And I’m not talking about multitasking, everyone already knows that’s not working anyway!
